I recently shared that I’ll be hosting a party very soon. This isn’t just an ordinary party, though. Yes, of course, we’ll have good food and great fellowship, but the twist makes this a party like no other!
“Come As You’ll Be” is the name of the party. I first heard of this from Jack Canfield – the author and super genius behind the “Chicken Soup For The Soul” series. When I first learned of this, I KNEW I’d be participating in one very soon.
And then time passed.
A lot of time – 5+ years had passed and I still haven’t participated or attended anything like it. So, I’ve decided to quit waiting for someone else to host it and I’ll host my own!
What IS it?
A “Come As You’ll Be” party is especially for people that are ready and realize that THEY create their happiness. It’s for people that want to start moving forward in a way that serves and uplifts them. It’s for people that are choosing to live a more fulfilling life. It’s also for people that may not fully know HOW to do these things but are certainly ready to give it a shot. It’s for anyone with a dream and a vision.
The twist – imagine it’s 5 years from now and everything you dream of accomplishing in the next 5 years has already happened. For me, I will have had a successful book tour and traveling on an international speaking tour while working on completing my 3rd book. So, at the party, I’ll dress in character and have props with me – acting “as if” these things have already happened.
If you’ve always wanted to be a singer, maybe you’ll bring a mocked up CD with your picture on it and songs you’ve recorded. If you’ve always wanted to be a famous chef, maybe you’ll bring some hors d’oeuvres to pass and share with business cards. If you’ve always wanted to be a successful business person, maybe you can have someone call your cell phone every 20 minutes to talk to you about business.
The options are wide open for you! What’s your dream and what do you look like living it? Come dressed as that person. Come as you’ll be in 2018 and then the entire night you need to speak in that frame of mind. Instead of saying “I want to write a book”, I might say “I’ve already had two best sellers and I’m writing my third.” I want you to really dive in and BE this future version of yourself.
What’s the Point?
When I first started talking about this, the big question I always receive is “what’s the point of doing this and pretending to be something you’re not?” Have you heard of the “law of attraction”? It isn’t for the birds and it isn’t nonsense…basically, it states that energy attracts like energy. Have you ever been thinking about someone and suddenly your phone rings and they’re on the other end? Have you ever realized that when you’re “having a bad day” that nothing seems to go right? Or have you noticed that somehow things just seem to work out? Well, it’s all about the law of attraction and the energy that you are putting out – how you are acting, being, living – is in direct relation to the results you’re experiencing.
The connection and the point of the party is that when you start living, thinking, sharing, believing, acting, discussing, etc. the life you REALLY want and desire, you are way more likely to attract it into your life because that energy connects with your energy. And, when we are ALL together living out our dreams for an evening – connecting, supporting, and loving one another, we boost up that energy.
Here’s the deal and the basics – you can go around continuing to live a life that is not fully fulfilled or not fully living, or you can decide and realize that you have a choice. You get to CHOOSE the life you live. You get to choose happiness and what that means to you. This party is simply a way to connect with others on the journey and to state boldly your dreams and visions.
I’m wrapping up the details soon and as soon as I have them, I’ll be sharing them with you! I’m heading to Bali for 28 days to write my book (for real) and leaving October 8th. I know that the party will be before October 8th – so watch for an invite. Everyone is welcome and please bring friends!
Sharing more soon so please stay tuned!!
